Brake Bleeding Product

Postby pbar » Thu Oct 04, 2018 6:57 am

Product recommendation time, and I think this will get my product of the year vote.

Recently refurbished the front brakes, calipers off, pistons out, new seals, etc.

Anyway as you will know brakes need bleeding after all that, and I decided to change the fluid as well as it's been a while.

This product worked great, very easy and no help needed. Just £5.99 from Halfords.

They do work well Paul. I've got a vacuum bleeder, pressure bleeder and various other types but I generally just use the little orange rubber pipe type that is blocked off at one end and has a slit in the side. Ideal for one man bleeding and "bleeding" cheap to buy too.

Thanks Paul. I didn't have much hope for it, seemed too good to be true at that price, but worked a treat.
